In 2014, as a newly trained physician, Soka Moses took on one of the toughest jobs in the world: treating highly contagious patients at the height of Liberia's Ebola outbreak. In this intense, emotional talk, he details what he saw on the frontlines of the crisis — and reveals the challenges and stigma that thousands of survivors still face.

    And we will have more deseaeses which are dangerous than Ebola. The medicines can’t kill the viruses immmediately. To have new medecines, scientists mút to study in 10 years. But virus’ evolution is much faster than that :-0

      Sako Murat It’s almost like you’re smarter than creating problems like widespread disease because you’re capable of washing your hands. Who knew!

      You don’t know anything about Ebola or disease transmission.

      ParanoidPixel Is that his fault? Is he personally responsible for everyone, everywhere? What’s your problem? Why do people like you exist?

      You find every possible reason under the sun to criticize people that are at the very least doing something to help others.

      Why do people like you even exist????

      This isn’t necessary, nor is it how any of this works. You’re clearly not intelligent enough. Big mouth and crazy ideas knocking about in that thick skull of yours.

      Jill Sutherland That was a massive lump of bullshit there

    It is not really easy to understand what this peopne are getting through

  14. It’s just TED talk Africa now

    Get better all. Great talk.

  20. When did Ted talks become a mecca for hateful, malicious and venomous angry white males, that are always obsessed with attacking anything/anyone non-white?

    These comments are toxic.
